Back on track – actually time for a drink I made today.  Lot’s of posting to get on track… hopefully the post quality isn’t suffering.  This drink was the alternative choice of Kathryn for my birthday beverage, so let’s see how its stacks up.  Notice the cool new “glassware” courtesy of my sister for my birthday – stainless martini glasses!

  • 1.5 ounces gin (Bombay Sapphire)
  • 0.75 curacao (pretty sure blue isn’t the best choice, but it’s what I had)
  • 1 dash of Angostura bitters
  • 1 dash orange bitters
  • 1 dash fresh lime juice

Mix vigorously over ice.  Serve in a martini glass.

Dave’s Thoughts:

  • The story is this drink was created in Rangoon in the 1930s… fun fact of the day!
  • When sipping you get a hint of orange from the curacao and a hint of the gin in the background, neither overpowers the other.
  • A fun drink that is… blue.  Don’t be surprised if you are asked about that blue popsicle you didn’t have.

Tasting Notes:

  • Dave’s Rating: 6/10
  • Strength: 6/10
  • Sweetness: 6/10
  • Is this drink the work of the devil?
